Youth Volunteering

Kwinana Youth Volunteering Program

The Kwinana Youth Volunteering Program connects young people aged 16 – 24 years to volunteer roles at City of Kwinana facilities including the Zone Youth Space, Kwinana Recquatic and Kwinana Public Library.

  • Feeling more connected to your community;
  • Developing new skills or building the skills you already have;
  • Gaining valuable experience that looks great on your resume and may help you score a job down the track;
  • Meeting and making friends with other young people who have similar interests and;
  • Increasing your self-confidence.
